My Mom needs some help

She has been diagnosed with stage 4 terminal breast cancer.  Because of this she is basically skin and bones now.  I know that one huge problem that I can help with is that she is no longer comfortable sitting in the bathtub because she is so boney but cannot stand for long enough to take a shower without fear of falling.  I have tried to find something to put in the bathtub that would make it softer for her but I can't locate anything and don't even know what to look for exactly!  Any suggestions on what even to google?  Thank you in advance!

Do you have a medical supply store near you? How about a shower chair?

Quoting sleepy_in_va: Do you have a medical supply store near you? How about a shower chair?

I do have a medical supply store near.  I have checked Walgreens but they didn't have what I was looking for.  She has a shower chair but would like to be able to just sit in the bath.  She's a bit finnicky and I'd like to get her something perfect.  I just found what she was talking about, but I was wondering if there was a better alternative that one of you ladies might know of.

“Bath tub cushion“ or “bath tub lounger“ are the terms you're looking for.

I'm not sure what would be best suited for her, sorry I can't be of any help there but I wanted to say that I will be sure to put you and your mother in my prayers.
